U.S. stock index futures fell late Sunday, after the Dow sank more than 700 points Friday. After falling around 150 points at the start of the electronic trading session, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures

were off around 50 points, or 0.2%, as of 8 p.m. Eastern, while S&P 500 futures

and Nasdaq-100 futures

were down a similar percentage. Wall Street ended Friday at its lowest levels in about two weeks as coronavirus cases continued to surge in Southern and Western states, bringing a relatively quick economic rebound into doubt. The Dow Jones Industrial Average

closed 730.05 points, or 2.8%, lower at 25,015.55; and the S&P 500 index
